The start of (I would argue) the greatest run of albums in history.

I thought I'd share this article with Keith Richards discussing 'Street Fighting Man' a week before his 70th birthday a few years ago below.

Keith Richards: 'I Had a Sound in My Head That Was Bugging Me'

If you click the link, a paywall may come up. However if you copy the title of the article into Google as a search and then click it, the piece comes up in full to read.

This album and the next few are the reason the Stones are the greatest rock and roll band ever!!

Favorite Stones album... or maybe Goat's Head Soup. December '68? I just turned 2 years old. December as a high school freshman would have been '81, I think. Tattoo You era Stones and in my opinion their last great album.

VH 1 came out in '78, not '68.

Let's kick this one around:

Beggar's Banquet v. VH
Let it Bleed v. VH II
Sticky Fingers v. WaCF
Exile v. Fair Warning
Goats Head v. Diver Down
Its Only Rock and Roll v. 1984

You know what, goose.  You're totally right.

Second greatest.  :)

You might be right about Tattoo You.  I really like Steel Wheels and A Bigger Bang, but are they "great" Stones albums?  Certainly not on Tattoo You's level.

'Tattoo You' is comprised of outtakes. Producer Chris Kimsey salvaged 'Start Me Up' that Keith Richards initially wrote-off.

The 'Voodoo Lounge' (1994) album is an underrated classic album. In all fairness, it should be up there with the rest of the classics.

I was watching a special about Keith Richards this morning.  He wrote 4 of the band's best albums when he was strung out on drugs, specifically heroin.

As is Fair Warning.

I saw them on the Voodoo Lounge tour.  I don't know that I would put it up there with Exile.

Voodoo Lounge is great as is Tattoo You but no the era around Exile is unrivalled - even by VH.
